View Full Version : Minneapolis and Boating

So after a year it looks like I will have my boat with me again. I currently live south of the city in Rosemount. For all of you Minnesota Moomba owners... what are the best lakes for me to get out on. I would like to board some, but for now just interested in getting out on the water. I have read a little about Prior lake. Seems decent. I know there are some smaller lakes(Crystal Lake in Apple Valley), but would like to experience some different ones. I know this is probably a dumb question, but I have a 2005 LS. Am I OK getting out in the St Croix and heading up to Stillwater. I know there are some huge boats at the Marina you can see from I 94. Just don't want to get swamped. Just looking for a little direction to enjoy my baby in this frozen tundra. Lastly, what is the warmest I can expect the water to get?
